Here are 7 great reasons to make Thailand your vacation destination.

Your money will go a long way

There are great package deals in Thailand and tours, food and clothing are all very affordable. When you want some downtime, go and enjoy spa treatments for far less than you would pay at home. Transportation is also very affordable, (do note the tuk-tuk taxis are known for fleecing tourists, so beware.

The people are incredibly friendly

Thailand wasn't given the nickname "Land Of Smiles" for no reason. The natives are kind, happy, and willing to help you if you are lost. Thai people welcome tourism and don't have a reputation for being pushy to tourists.

Thai food is amazing

We already said it was cheap, but did you know it is also delicious? There are a variety of options and when in doubt ask a local what they recommend, and what you should try in that region. Please note that often their idea of spicy is what we typically would call extremely hot.

Phuket really is a paradise

There are many great beaches and islands in Thailand, and plenty of them are worth visiting. But don't overlook the popular Island of Phuket, it earned its great reputation for a reason. The multi-colored sunsets should not be missed and Khao Phra Thaew National Park, a rainforest with protected wildlife, is a treasure to experience which offers great hiking trails and waterfalls.

Bangkok is a cultural Mecca

This cosmopolitan city offers its visitors culture with its floating markets, history at the Grand Palace and Temple of the Dawn (just to name a few), excitement at rooftop bars, and mouth-watering dining experiences with its local cuisine. Let's say it is paradise at its best.

Full moon parties

Haad Rin on the island of Ko Pha Ngan is where the full moon party phenomenon first started, and today, you can experience them throughout Thailand. These famous beach parties are known for great music, intense dancing, and glow-in-the-dark body paint.

Thailand is an ideal location for the avid traveler

Yes, it may take a while to get there, but once in Thailand, it is quick to hop a flight to neighboring countries and Islands. Bali is only 4 hours away, Hong Kong is 3 hours away, and Singapore is only 2 hours away. This makes Thailand a great destination to start or end an Asian Adventure.
